KHARKIV, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. The new governor of Ukraine's northeastern Kharkiv region, Ihor Baluta, has pledged to fight corruption and separatism as agenda priorities.

"I am calling for a moratorium on any ideas of separatism. We should free ourselves from corruption and overhaul the management of state affairs," he told reporters on Wednesday.

Baluta, 44, a native of Kharkiv and member of the Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party, has not yet formed a regional government. "It would take several days," he said. Reports said party colleague Ivan Varchenko would probably become his deputy.

Varchenko, briefly held by Right Sector radicals at the regional administration's headquarters, had repeatedly voiced ambitions to become governor.
